If you’re in the fashion industry, are even remotely related to the fraternity or if you have any know how of the fashion weeks, you can imagine what a mad house it must be backstage at the shows.
Models, make-up artists, hairdressers, stylists, designers, photographers, PR people and even journalists fill the backstage area, how anyone manages to get their job done is a question to ponder upon.
Here is an exclusive sneak peak behind the stage at TFPW15 to see what really happens and what it takes to put on a fashion week together:
1. Models & Stylists start arriving.
This is the good part, when you see excited faces and happy souls.
2. The looks are meticulously crafted.
There’s face charts for each designer’s showcase that define exactly how the models should look.
3. The makeup artists & stylists begin their job.
Which is a hands on deck job when you have 16 or more models for each showcase.
4. Sometimes the makeup is just not right / good enough / a little off.
In which case, the model steps in to add the finishing touches herself.
5. There’s no room for anything.
There are no glamorous makeup rooms, or spacious dressing rooms, or any room for anything for that matter, so if you want to rest your tushy, a 2 feet empty space on the floor will have to do.
6. Yet, there’s a photographer in every nook & cranny.
Yes, they are everywhere. You will probably find one hidden behind the dress rack trying to get the perfect detailed shot of the designer’s collection.
7. It’s like a maze of mirrors.
Mirror mirror, on the wall. Who is the prettiest model of them all?
8. Models line up for the showcase.
Once they are done checking themselves out in the mirrors of course. They also line up for a customary group photo with the designer post-showcase.
9. There’s means of resuscitation.
Rest assured there is a cup (or two) of coffee in the mix, or Redbull in this case, which is a dream come true for those caught up in the mayhem.
10. And last but not the least, lots of selfies are taken.
No being is immune to selfies, be it a model, stylist, celebrity or just another fashion maniac.
